My beautiful Seal Lynx Point Torbie, Maya Linn went to the Bridge this afternoon. She went down hill VERY fast. This morning she was bobbing her head back and forth like Stevie Wonder and kept falling down. I tried giving her turkey baby food and she couldn't see the plate. I took her back to the vet and he determined that she had, in fact, gone blind and was caused by some kind of brain tumor. The second opinion had the same findings.

My heart is broken. I've had her since she was 8 weeks old. She was found in the dumpster along with her mama and brother at the San Juan airport in PR.

Maya went on to win "National Best Household Pet Kitten" in the A.A.C.E cat shows.

Maya, I will miss your premium purr that helped me drift off to sleep while my head was buried deep in your belly. It's just not the same without you.
